Somewhat odd (and off) movie about a man who goes back to Sicily after many years after his parents were killed in a freak accident (their horse went off a cliff! Oy!) When he come back, he finds the tensions between the locals and the bad guys who order people around to have reached a crescendo and stays to, uh, try to work things out. I guess. He doesnt really, the whole movie is just one big anticlimax. You think hell rescue the girl but he doesnt, you think hell get rid of the bad guys in the end but he doesnt etc etc. I mean, who IS the hero here? Oh thats right! Its the MAFIA! Silly me (face palm). This movie tries to get the viewer worked up about the goings on, but its actually quite hard for the viewer, since theres noone to root for.

The Mafia has a strong influence in this story of tradition and romance in Sicily. Action abounds.
